The 2013-2016 Audi Q5 uses the 2.0TFSI engine which is subject to carbon buildup causing power loss, check engine light, and a rough idle. In normal vehicles, the engine is cleaned by the gasoline flowing through, however, the Q5 uses direct injection so gasoline does not flow through common carbon buildup areas.
The solution is to remove the intake manifold and professionally clean the intake manifold, intake ports on the cylinder head, and the intake valves. This may need to be done in as few as 20,000 miles.
